Product Description:

Healthy eating is a simple and pleasurable way to feel your best. The long-awaited American Medical Association Family Health Cookbook combines good health and great taste in more than 350 enticing new recipes your family will love.

The AMA Family Health Cookbook helps you enjoy the fresh, whole foods you need every day. It also shows you how to eat the sweets and fats you love without the guilt -- by enjoying them in moderation. Every recipe includes a nutritional analysis so you know how each dish fits into your overall diet. You'll find quick-and-easy recipes for busy cooks, after-school snacks for kids, and delicious alternatives to high-calorie classics.

The recipes here offer easy, step-by-step instructions, serving suggestions, and side-dish ideas. Helpful sidebars introduce new ingredients, show you how to shop for the best products, and explain cooking techniques that produce great results. Throughout the book, you'll find charts detailing the vitamin and mineral content of fruits and vegetables, the different types of fats and oils and their cooking properties, and flavorful uses for sweet and savory herbs and spices.

Bringing you the know-how you need to eat well and stay well, the AMA Family Health Cookbook starts off with an informative 50-page section on basic nutrition and the vital link between diet and health. You can evaluate your nutritional profile with easy-to-use charts and tables. Loaded with reliable tips for feeding your growing family, controlling your weight with diet and exercise, and eating right to help prevent or control disease, the AMA Family Health Cookbook is your family's indispensable guide to healthy, delightful dining. Review:
In a sea of diet cookbooks and healthy eating plans, the American Medical Association Family Health Cookbook is a breath of fresh air, with its easy-to-follow cooking instructions and handy nutritional charts. The AMA is the nation's largest organization of doctors--so you're in safe hands with these authors.

The collection kicks off with a 50-page section on good nutrition based on the USDA's food pyramid. Here you'll learn how to incorporate the essential food groups into your family's diet without breaking a sweat. Then comes the pièce de résistance--350 recipes that prove healthy eating doesn't have to be dull. These dishes are vibrant and creative, and will certainly appeal to young taste buds. A Modern Macaroni and Cheddar dish is just as tasty as traditional versions, but contains considerably less fat, and the Double Chocolate Brownies use apple sauce as a substitute for some of the shortening. Cooks can choose from a huge selection of ethnically diverse or more traditional entrees--from Thai Stir-Fry with Ginger and Mint to Summer Sloppy Joes. There are also delicious recipes for salads, appetizers, desserts, drinks, and light snacks.

Whether you're whipping up a light lunch or commanding a huge dinner party, the book abounds with fresh and inspired ideas. Simple step-by-step cooking instructions make this a great book for those new to the kitchen, or for cooks in a hurry. --Naomi Gesinger
